Hey! Forever here with a review!!
Ah this is an old story, I see. Got this while browsing through the old section of the Green Room. Anyway, to the review now.
This Leona, if I am not very wrong, was the helper of Eloise. Hm... I definitely see her slowly creeping into the plot and making herself a suspicious person. Now I wonder if she had a hand on making Eloise turn evil and devil at last. After all, it was only after Eloise opened the shop and came into contact with Leona that she became evil. I wonder how I failed to notice it at the first place. Things are getting clearer to me.
Well, this Leona definitely seems to be very evil and again, I fell to understand the reason behind her evilness as I did in Eloise's case. Maybe there's something. I will leave it at that only. Turning people into snake-human hybrids doesn't seem to be a good business at all. I wonder if somehow Leona bewitched Eloise to do whatever she did.
Now to Helena's characteristics. Ah well, she was definitely not treated in a good manner. So, we can't heavily blame her for the fact that she didn't have any sympathy for her family. However, I do wonder a bit about the daughter, i.e., Esmè. Didn't Helena love her? I mean she got distanced from her husband, I understood that and the reason behind that but what about Esmè? Did Helena have any sort of grudge because of the fact that her husband loved her daughter but not her? Ah, probably.
Overall, I think this was quite an intriguing story that we had here. It cleared up a lot of things. I wonder what she did after she abandoned them. Perhaps lived a new life, as was mentioned.
